, very pleasing show. former president jimmy carter is joining us in what i assume is a late night comedy first. we're going to be talking about guinea worms. they are like the gummy worm that eats you. [ laughter ] comedy gold! [laughter] lately, if you've been watching the television or reading the newspapers, you may have noticed the federal government thanks to dead lock in inertia and what many analysts are calling fatheadedness is not really doing anything when it comes to governing, yeah governing. [ laughter ] but the states are picking up the slack. yes, the meth laboratories of democracy are hard at work tackling all of our nation's most important and pressing issues as we see in our state laws round-up. [cheers and applause] oh, yeah! let's put up the big board! [laughter] let's do it. [ laughter. laugh. [cheers and applause] yes, virginia and sodomy because v.a. is for lovers of missionary position. [laughter] >> the republican nominee for governor in virginia has come out against oral sex and anal sex, not just the gay kind, the married consenting adult variety as with the. >
women. that was a un convention and signed by then president jimmy carter. anybody remember jimmy carter? it's never been ratifyed in the u.s. senate and states have ratified it, signed it with the exception of the united states, so in 1998 women of san francisco said that is not good enough. we're going to create our own ordinance reflecting this international bill of rights for women. next slide. so in terms of work place you will hear a little bit more from our policy director ann lehmas who is going to step in for someone who had a last minute something come up but we launched this initiative together with cal vert investments and a human rights monitoring organization to help our employers create gender equitable work places, and for that work ann and i went to miland italy to receive an award from the italian government for the international work life balance award. we also work for working mothers. we working on lactation accumulations and guidelines in what employers have to do with moms and accommodating them and we're are putting together a brochure on family leave
of the ausn symphony. jimmy carter. one page. [laughter] there are many more in the book. an interesting character. there is little doubt that he favored the palesti t i also believe he was genuinely committed to israel surviving and cursing. once for example when israel was in danger of attack he provided the israelis with top-secret defense equipment which he did not even share with any of his close allies. that is all about him for the moment. ronald reagan, he made sure he could -- during world war ii, his job was to process films taken by u.s. army cameramen. one of the new stones showed a concentration camp. he took a copy of this home and kept it. at a dinner for a movie producer and his wife were guests, they expressed their belief that atrocities were allied -- bill clinton. several years before he became president his friend and baptist minister predicted that he would become president. that's interesting. he said when he did god would never forgive him if he didn't stand by israel. one of the many things clinton did to help israel was to work exhaustively with arafat to agree
was -- she's another one that i feel confident that jimmy carter could never have been elected president had it not been for his mother. the reason i say that is that from her earliest days, she was totally open-minded on race. and in south georgia, that was not an easy thing. jimmy carter said that his mother -- he said, my mother had no -- knew no color line. and that was implanted in him. his father was a classic georgia segregationist who died before the supreme court decision. her -- she was a great baseball fan. her great hero in 1947, that early, was jackie robinson. now in plains, georgia, that was not a popular hero. but that's how strongly she felt about the racial equality and tolerance. and without that, he could not have been nominated, much less elected. >> james earl carter sr., what was he like? >> he was a very successful peanut warehouseman and farmer. very much a man of his place and his time. he was very glad that his son went to annapolis. that was jimmy carter's dream from the time he was 6 years old, which was quite amazing. earl carter was a leading man in his little
the media doesn't talk about the legacy. when you have some really nice presidents like jimmy carter coming here to praise bush, and you know, we did up an ad as code pink to put out in the papers here, and the papers refused to run our ad. so you have this whitewashing of the bush legacy, and it paves the way for another bush to come in. >> john: i think so. i think jim agrees with me that jeb would never be president of this country. med e a benjamin, author of "drone warfare," i could talk about this with you all night. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> john: it could be possible to squeeze out a laugh today.. converstion started weekdays at 9am eastern. >> i'm a slutty bob hope. >> you are. >> the troops love me.

, maybe you could give us more information on jimmy carter sent you kind of -- >> jimmy carter, the very strange thing about jimmy carter, he organized a group called the elders it and, of course, it seems incredible to me that the elders is horrific, phony, russian propaganda that is so anti-jewish answer and israel. and this group that's supposed to sit by and help jews among others in the middle east, has a horrific name. it seems that he is so, if you're very sympathetic towards him use a the man is the underdog, which, of course, israel was, the jews were for so long. but he seems very much pro-palestinian without really being anti-israel or anti-jewish. i know he put the book, he wrote a book in which he made a mistake. he admitted that was a mistake. but i honestly think from reading a lot about him and what he did come is that he is very much, it's a very difficult position to be in, very much pro-israel and pro-palestinian but with a bias going towards the arabs. i'm sure many of you would disagree with me and you may be right. >> i have a couple questions. during the rolion and
jimmy carter was president. and now this from the "associated press." saying the weakness may signal some companies are worried about deep government spending, sequestration cuts, even though the bulk of the cuts have yet to kick in. harry reid also citing the cuts saying, quote, only congress can undo the serious effects of republicans harsh austerity. but no mention of the hike in the payroll tax which is blamed for consumers clamping down on spending, or a chamber of commerce study survey fining the healthcare law is now the biggest concern of and for employers. to market watcher craig smith on separating the fact from fiction. is it government spending slowing down because of sequestration? or is it consumers not spending? >> well, you and i both know what it is, eric. this is what is funny. i watched you talk about it on "the five" in december. i've watched the fox business anchors, talk about it, that when you go to raise taxes on the top 2% of american people, you are going to lose jobs, and guess what? we're seeing that slowdown right now eric. >> right. let me just jump in h
- profile americans. such as former presidents bill clinton and jimmy carter. the u-s senate and house have passed a measure aimed at ending the air traffic controller furloughs which caused widespread delays this week. controllers had to take unpaid furlough days because of forced federal spending cuts. the measure gives the department of transportation flexibility in dealing with the forced budget cuts. and also allows the f-a-a to continue operations at 149- control towers which had been slated to close. the measure now goes to president obama for his signature. some democrats complain, the new bill is a band-aid for one agency and does not address the overall threats the across -the -board cuts pose to the economy. and to programs affecting children, seniors and the poor. >> jacqueline: 80s expected in cupertino. 80s in danville antioch, livermore. 70's for the east bay shore. 61 in ocean beach. as we take a look at your extended forecast. as for go towards next week, monday will log all of. but a big warm up. stay tuned to see the updates on that. >> pam: demolition of the dome theater

a panel featuring former president jimmy carter and former u.s. ambassador to south korea, james laney. they recount president carter's intervention in the 1974 north korean nuclear crisis. >> in 1994, the united states and other countries, as well as the international atomic energy agency in vienna, knew that between 1989 and 1991, north korea had reprocessed a small amount of plutonium. blew tonum is one of the ways you can make a nuclear weapon. the united states and the iaea support evidence by south korea and others, demanded that north korea subject itself to special inspections by the international atomic energy agency, so that the agency and the rest of the world could know precisely how much plutonium north korea had. north korea refused to allow those inspections. the u.s. had another concern. the five megawatt reactor that they had in operation had spent fuel in it that they wanted to discharge. that spent fuel, when discharged and cooled in cooling ponds, would be able to be plutonium would be able to be separated from it, and from that. five to six nuclear weapons worth of
or jimmy carter admire building houses, admire the clinton foundation. >> i think they do, but, for instance, jimmy carter has been called the best ex-president in history. he takes that as a rank insult because it's sort of like best restaurant in a hospital or something, you know, not something that you'd want to be if you were a good president. that has not particularly blown back on his presidential career so i think george w. bush, if he wants history to remember him well actually it may be good for him to sort of step back and let the process work its will. >> how big of a challenge is it, you know, for the president, do you think, wayne, who has, even as george w. bush has not spoken of him, has said some not flattering things about his presidency? what do you think we'll hear from president obama today. that's a little tricky line he may be walking. >> look, this is the bush crowd. this is the bush house. obama will be i think if not effusive certainly gracious in his discussion of his predecessor. that's what's going to happen here today. this is george bush's day, and
president jimmy carter for the clinton white house. critics warned today that north korea has broken every past promise to disarm. >> this has been going on for decades. a cycle of confrontation, negotiation, aid and the false hope that somehow the north koreans would give up their efforts to acquire nuclear weapons and a means to deliver them. >> reporter: still, as kerry took a few moments to visit a 14th century buddhist temple in downtown tokyo and meet some local residents. >> ah! >> reporter: some experts believe there's a peaceful path out of this crisis. >> i think kim jong-un has basically run out of bluster. we're clearly in the end game now. maybe they'll end with a fireworks display. maybe just with a whimper but i think he's going back in his pocket. >> kim has not been seen publicly for two weeks. as kerry wraps up this six-nation tour, there is no sign that north korea is ready yet to stop nuclear testing or threatening its neighbors, two things it has to do before there could be direct talks with the u.s. lester? >> nbc's andrea mitchell in tokyo for us, thank you. >>> back

can only imagine. let's move to some of those profiles we saw. jimmy carter, president jimmy carter was the first president to make humans rights a cornerstone of u.s. foreign policy. tell me about your conversation with president carter. >> one of the things that interested me, he was--what he said about impunity, where he said that he varied a bit from more pure rights activists. he said he wasn't necessarily opposed to giving wretched dictators impunity if it meant that they would step down sooner. they were afraid of being prosecuted by the international criminal court, and because of that they're not willing to give up. they stay and they fight. but if you gave them impunity, and you were not going to prosecute them, they might be willing to step down sooner and save more people sooner. >> michael: it's a cut your loses type of a policy. >> yes more practical. >> michael: it seems that way. let's move to representative john lewis. he's a really spiritual man. how were you able to capture this through your photography? >> i think he simply gave it to me. we had a wonderful conve

because they just re-elected jimmy carter for the third time. it is a miracle. but if you go on facebook just read what some of your liberal friends are saying. they are very partisan and very apologetic and completely out of touch with reality. >> 19% of republicans said there is nothing they disliked about their party. 37% of democrats said the same thing about their party. is that actually dangerous about the democrats? >> absolutely. there was a thing going on about our friend julian sanchez launched three or four years ago , epistemic closure. and he had a point and there is something to that everyone talking in their media bubbles and at each other have lost the idea of internal criticism. that is happening on the left right now. the right and the republican party which i will never join is having a more interesting conversation with itself right now than we have seen any party have in a really, really longtime. probably since bill clinton and the democrats started challenging the old jimmy carter orthodoxy. the more intellectual action and curse me for saying is among the conserva

would i love to hear some of those conversations of course jimmy carter was talking about the civil rights record and the human rights record of george w. bush in africa and he underscored there that today. he's hoping history will judge him kindly. >> in the end leaders are defined by the convictions they hold and my deepest conviction, the guiding principle of the administration is that the united states of america must strife to expand the reach of freedom. >> michael: so how will history look at this president? will he be remembered with the fondness given to f.d.r. or the vitriol of mixon. joining me now is alan lichtman, alan is joining me from washington, d.c. welcome, alan. >> thank you. >> michael: first let's hear how george w. bush summed up his own legacy. >> we expanded freedom at home by raising standards at schools and lowering taxes for everybody. [applause] that we liberated nations from dictatorship and freed people from a.i.d.s. and when our freedom came under attack we made the tough decisions required to keep the american people safe. [applause] >> michael: so i
. if the clintons have marital confusion, me and laura, really steady. jimmy carter was clean as a whistle but didn't know a lot of stuff. reagan comes along and says, carter, i can beat him. it's always knocking guy who's in there. they come out here today, hold hands. they love each other. basically each depended for his personal career and success on bashing the other guy's weakness. punching him in his bad eye. >> that's politics, though. >> here's clinton. let's take a look. here's clinton and obama paying tribute to the recent president. let's take a listen. >> i like president bush. we do a lot of speeches together and i like it when we have disagreements. he's disarmingly direct. we were having an argument over health care in one of these speeches and i went on about the german health care system. he said, i don't know a thing about the german health care system. i think he probably won the argument. >> what president clinton said is absolutely true. to know the man is to like the man. because he's comfortable in his own skin. he knows who he is. he doesn't put on any pretenses. he takes hi
is when former president jimmy carter is going to make his remarks. about 47 after the hour is when president george h.w. bush. bush 41 no doubt a very proud father on this day is going to address the crowd. that is really special that he is able to be here. as we know he has been in poor health and was hospitalized around thanksgiving. a 52 after the hour is when president clinton will get up and address this crowd, and then right before the top of the hour at noon eastern time is when president barack obama will take the stage, and then of course, everyone wants to know the man of the hour, george w. bush himself will take the stage at 12:13 eastern time. the 43rd president of the united states. this audience is packed with head of state, dignitaries, members of his administration, a truly spectacular day to be witnessing here in person, jon. jon: i would not want to be the person who was tasked with the seating chart for this assemblage of distinguished personnel. so the museum and the library itself, what can visitors see? >> jon it is amazing. you know the library and the museu
. item two, the labor force participation rate sunk to the lowest level since the days of jimmy carter. three, a half million people left the work force, they're gone and many of them to disability and finally, the unemployment rate, yeah, it dropped a fraction, why? because a half million people dropped out of the labor force. this is not the recovery we were promised and the stock market shows it. it will drop triple digits.
